The Pros and Cons of Facebook

by Helgavan

I’ve wanted to write about this for a while. Facebook is such an interesting platform on which to watch the lives of others unfold. A work colleague once said, “it’s a subtle form of voyeurism”. She was absolutely right, although these days there’s absolutely nothing subtle about it. People stick it all out there.  There are a number of things I’ve observed about what I see and read on Facebook. I’ve thought about the pros and cons of Facebook and come up with the following…

PROS

1. Facebook Is Helpful In Documenting Your Life

In an age where there’s not always time to keep a private journal, take photos, develop them and put them in a scrapbook, Facebook is a wonderful way of keeping a log of all the good things that happen in your life. It’s easy to forget what dates you were where or what happened when, but when you have photographed them and put them up on FB, they are always there for you to refer back to.

2. Facebook Often Focuses On The Good In Your Life . . .
